Rangers will take New Zealand goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic on trial at Auchenhowie this week, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

Manager Steven Gerrard has confirmed he will be given a week-long chance to impress and win a deal at the Gers, say the paper, after he left Vancouver Whitecaps at the end of the last Major League Soccer season.

Marinovic made 36 appearances in two years for the Whitecaps, having spent the majority of his career to date in the lower leagues of German football.

Winning 23 caps for his country, he will now compete for a place in Rangers squad to potentially replace the likes of Wes Foderingham, Jak Alnwick and Robby McCrorie.

Allan McGregor is undroppable, but we still need quality back-up.

Foderingham and McCrorie both played a part in today’s friendly against Helsinki, although a ‘keeper with the quality of Foderingham will likely look to play regular first-team football elsewhere rather than sit on the bench.

He was one of the first signings through the door in the Warburton days and Marinovic arriving could open the door for his exit.
